If you’ve been following MoggBlog for some time, you’ll be familiar with Birmingham based duo Beorma. Back with their latest release ‘Tears‘, this elevating number hears the two-piece still pay ode to their R&B and indie-pop roots, whilst turning down a more dance avenue too. Armed with an old school noughties vibe and sounding somewhere between Katy B and The 1975, this refreshing number feels nostalgic yet unfamiliar.
Beorma’s Tom talks about Tears and had the following to say, “Tears is really different from anything else we’ve done and I think it’s a taste of our next phase. I kinda like the idea of somebody hearing this song who’s familiar with our initial EP and not realising that it’s the same artist. Everybody likes different genres of music so why do we expect artists to make the same type of music over and over again when they are so heavily influenced by a variety of music. This was a challenge to me production wise, I’ve never mixed this type of music before but I loved every second of it, making it sound kinda cheap and ‘bedroom-y’ like old school garage songs used to sound was so much fun.”
Adding to Tom’s thoughts, Fern mentions, “I already had the “I’m charging for my tears” line in my head from a conversation I’d previously had with a friend where I said I wasn’t gonna cry in front of anyone cause I was charging for tears, from that line the rest of the lyrics just naturally progressed. When Tom sent me the instrumental at first I was like “this is so different where will this fit in?” but then part of me was super stoked cause I was a huge Katy B fan when I was younger so this was my chance to have a go at making my own garage anthem so I wasp umped and ready to just lay it all in the lyrics and make them as sassy as the track is. As a band we don’t like to label ourselves and place our music in a box, we kinda just make music we would want to listen to, whether it’s garage or indie pop we don’t really pay that much attention to genres as such, we just look at it as making music I’d say.”
